I'm after some advice following a road collision a couple of weeks ago. Basically a car pulled across me, I went into his windscreen etc etc.
The driver basically admitted to it being his fault.
I have a solicitor on the case presently.
My question regards my bike. My friend had a look at it and said he couldn't see any obvious damage to the frame/fork/bars etc but that the front wheel was a little bit out of true.
I have read that if I carbon bike is in any sort of head on collision with a vehicle etc more than likely the bike will be written off as there me be unseen damage to the carbon weave which may fail later.
Tbh I'd rather it wasn't written off as it's a lovely bike and I have ploughed some money into it but obviously don't want that to cause me to have an accident later if it does fail.
Has anyone had any experience into how to get a bike checked to make sure it's safe so I can inform the solicitors. I am aware you can have the bike X rayed but seeing as that costs over a grand I'd rather not.
any help appreciated
